Hello, Father! Woot! The beginning of my third year writing on this blog… I wonder how long it will continue.   Thank you, Lord, for all the help my family and friends have given to me and my Mate this week, and thank you for the new people I’ve met just recently. I thank you […]

Lord, I thank you for the rocky, uncomfortable start to this day, because I know that not every day can be as awesome as some of the ones I’ve had lately, and I know that I can trust you to be just as close, and just as merciful and caring as ever, even when things […]

Hello, Lord. Thank you for my joy and excitement lately, and thank you for giving me somewhat of a direction for my work this day. Thank you for the boldness of my husband, and thank you for leading him to a possible free camper for us to fix up right here a few miles away! […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the awesome delight of knowing you, and being known by you, Father! I honestly feel more safe and secure than at any other time of my life, despite the fact that we are once again facing eviction, and this year, we do not have ANY transportation besides our own […]

Good morning, Lord! This is my 364th post this year! Thank you, Father, for providing enough money for me to renew this domain (website) for another year, so that I still have a place to praise you every day. I’m not sure if you will have me continue to write every single day, but seeing […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you for giving me so much sleep last night — perhaps even too much, if I were to quantify it! 😛 Please help me to rely less and less on the CLOCK and more and more on looking to you for guidance and timing. Thank you for encouraging me in my […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for your awesome love and care! Thank you for making it so that my husband was motivated to turn on the heat today, so that it can be warmer than 50-some degrees in the house, helping me to not be so distracted with cold. Please help him, Father. […]

Good morning, Lord! Thank you so much for the awesome fellowship with my husband this morning, and thank you for lifting his spirits and giving him joy today! Please be near to my oldest son, who is really struggling with himself and the unknowns of his life at the moment. Please give him an assurance […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you for this most awesome weather — warm but not hot, humid but not raining, overcast but not dreary. Perfect! Thank you also for all the fun I’ve had in the last 24 hours exploring nature books on Amazon! I really have had a difficult time keeping my head up these […]

Oct 11

Good morning, Father! Thank you for the nice early start to my day, and thank you for sustaining me and encouraging me through my days of struggle and growth. Thank you for your guidance in my work and also in my learning and developing in so many ways outside of the more obvious work tasks. […]

Good morning, Father! I’m already having a good day — thank you! I am really enjoying adding to my two new just-for-me websites, Bahasa Saya (Indonesian) and Taxoni (Relationships in Nature)! Even though they are just little fledgling sites with a lot of kinks to work out, and even though they are not designed to […]

Good morning, Father! Thank you so much for getting me up and moving before the sun, in order to be a good help meet for my husband as his day began. Thank you for the fellowship, the stamina, the clear headedness. Thank you for the encouragement. It is awesome to have already accomplished so much […]

Good morning, Father. Thank you for helping me get up before dawn this morning and get out there and get the back yard mowed — before the neighbor let their dog out! Thank you for showing me, reassuring me that it is NOT me, for I have never hated an animal, but that black lab’s […]

Mar 12

Good morning, Father! Thank you for getting me up bright and early on this Sabbath morning. Thank you so much for giving me hope again, a purpose, a goal, some way to make my time and skills and talents more valuable, more helpful to others. Thank you for lighting a fire inside me, a fervency, […]

Mar 7

Hi, God. My heart is really straining to reach up to you and be brave and not give up. So I think I’ll just read scriptures for a while and post here the ones that comfort my heart, to try to help myself and anyone else out there who’s hurting.

  Psalm 33:18-22 ERV

Good morning, Father! Thank you for making it possible for me to sleep in until almost 9am this morning — I really needed it! 😀 Thank you also for encouraging me to read yesterday, and writing instead of just vegging out again, wasting time being caught up in despair like I was the day before. […]
